This season’s Contemporary Art OnlineLondon, features the works by artists who have widely experimented with figuration.

From Keith Haring’s and Stik’s sketched and cartoon-like figures, to Julian Opie’s simplified forms, to Antony Gormley and Aboudia’s inquiry into the human condition, these works testify the enduring importance of figuration in contemporary art.
